    Hi I live in Australia and have a High Definition set top box to receive free to air HD digital. I am after a HDD recorder but want one that will accept the y/Pb/Pr signal from my set top box. I want a recorder that will take the HD widescreen AC3 signal and record it through the component cable. I don't know to much about the recorders yet and think this type of unit might not exist due to the extra memory/bandwidth that would be needed to store this signal. Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I'm afraid there isn't a High Definition recorder with component input available yet. As you are probably aware Panasonic and Sony have both launched BluRay devices in Japan - these are likely to see a US launch next year and then a worldwide rollout will commence.

    Don't think you'll ever get a recorder that will record AC3 sound through the component cable for the simple fact that component only carries video - you'd need to connect either a TOSLINK, SPDIF (and possibly Firewire if that becomes more common for sound) to the recorder - assuming manufaturers, broadcasters and film companies ever agree to let us poor plebs record AC3 through these input types.

    Yeah I realise i'd need toslink for the AC3. I was basically after a HDD recorder that would sit inline with the settop box and record the exact info for later playback. So component and Optical.
